Here in the northeast it's the cold winter time. Some people are fortunate enough to live somewhere where it is warm in the winter. If you live somewhere cold do you like to wear short or long socks in the winter? I need to wear long socks or else the chill just goes right up my legs. My kids however, are perfectly fine wearing short socks. How about you?

I own both types. I like both as well. I just go with whatever is clean at the time. My laundry always seems to be backed up for some reason.

I am one of the fortunate ones living where it is mostly warm in the winter. I have family I like to visit in the northeast and I get excited because I get to wear my handful of knee socks on my visits. I'm sure if I lived there I would wear knee socks all winter.

That's where we are and it's freezing here. I'm definitely wearing my knee socks.

I hate to wear socks at all, so I wear the short ones because they annoy me less. Less fabric on the skin I guess. My son wears the ones that go halfway up his calf. My daughter has some of each, but she prefers the longer ones.

I wear long socks in the winter. I hate long socks though. I prefer even short socks or no socks. I am a sandals kind of girl.I love sandals. I go through those more than regular shoes.

I know what you mean. I really want it to get warm quick so I don't have to wear socks.

Hi ya Shar19 Well if I am wearing boots then I definatly like to wear long socks, I don't like the feel of cold boots on my legs. If it is really cold then I would wear my thermals!

I always wear short socks. I will wear long socks if I am going out to play in the deep snow though. It helps to keep my legs warm.

I like to wear longer socks in the winter, but I don't have that many pairs of them so most days I am stuck wearing shorter socks. Yes, I also think it is very much colder to wear short socks because like you said you can feel the cold air go right up your legs! BRRRR!
